Description

  The present invention relates to a liquid crystal display device, and more particularly to a liquid crystal display device in which a pixel is divided into a plurality of subpixels.

  Since a liquid crystal display device is advantageous in that it is thinner and lighter than a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) and can be driven at a low voltage and consumes less power, a TV, a notebook PC (personal computer), a desktop PC, It is often used in electronic devices such as PDAs (mobile terminals) and mobile phones. In particular, an active matrix liquid crystal display device in which a TFT (Thin Film Transistor) is provided as a switching element for each pixel (sub-pixel) exhibits excellent display characteristics comparable to a CRT because of its high driving capability. In addition, it has come to be widely used in fields where CRT has been used in the past, such as desktop PCs and televisions.

  In these applications, a high viewing angle characteristic that allows the display screen to be viewed from all directions is required. As a liquid crystal display device capable of obtaining a wide viewing angle, an MVA (Multi-domain Vertical Alignment) type liquid crystal display device is known. The MVA liquid crystal display device can realize high viewing angle characteristics by having a plurality of regions (domains) in which the alignment directions of liquid crystal molecules are different from each other in each pixel region.

  In a vertical alignment type liquid crystal display device in which liquid crystal molecules are aligned perpendicularly to a substrate as in the MVA method, light switching is performed mainly utilizing the birefringence of the liquid crystal. In general, in a vertical alignment type liquid crystal display device, the phase difference caused by birefringence differs between light traveling in the normal direction of the display screen and light traveling in a direction oblique thereto. In the oblique direction, the gradation luminance characteristic (γ characteristic) deviates from the set value in all gradations. Therefore, the transmittance characteristic (TV characteristic) with respect to the voltage applied to the liquid crystal is different between the normal direction and the diagonal direction of the display screen. Therefore, even if the TV characteristic in the screen normal direction is optimally adjusted, When viewed from the direction, there is a phenomenon that the TV characteristic is distorted and the screen color changes whitish. This phenomenon is called “wash out”.

  As a means for improving white-brown, each pixel is divided into a sub-pixel A and a sub-pixel B, and the sub-pixel A and the sub-pixel B have different so-called halftone structure applied voltages to the respective liquid crystals. Liquid crystal display devices have been proposed. In a liquid crystal display device having a halftone structure, it is possible to suppress a deviation from the front of a phase difference due to birefringence in an oblique direction by having different γ characteristics in a pixel, and it is possible to suppress a whitishness.

  FIG. 5 shows a pixel configuration of a liquid crystal display device having a halftone structure. As shown in FIG. 5, the TFT substrate includes a plurality of gate bus lines 12 formed on the glass substrate 10 and a plurality of gate bus lines 12 that intersect with the gate bus lines 12 through an insulating film made of an SiN film or the like. And a drain bus line 14. Here, the plurality of gate bus lines 12 are sequentially scanned. In FIG. 2, the nth gate bus line 12n scanned nth and the (n + 1) th gate bus line 12 scanned (n + 1) th are shown. (N + 1).

  In the vicinity of the intersection of the gate bus line 12n and the drain bus line 14, a first TFT (thin film transistor) 21 and a second TFT 22 formed for each pixel are arranged adjacent to each other. A part of the gate bus line 12n functions as a gate electrode of the first TFT 21 and the second TFT 22. On the gate bus line 12n, an operation semiconductor layer 21c of the first TFT 21 and an operation semiconductor layer 22c of the second TFT 22 are formed via an insulating film. A channel protective film (not shown) is formed on each of the operating semiconductor layers 21c and 22c. On the channel protective film of the TFT 21, a drain electrode 21a and an n-type impurity semiconductor layer (not shown) below the drain electrode 21a and a source electrode 21b and an n-type impurity semiconductor layer (not shown) below the source electrode 21b face each other with a predetermined gap. Is formed. On the channel protective film of the TFT 22, a drain electrode 22a and an n-type impurity semiconductor layer (not shown) below the drain electrode 22a, and a source electrode 22b and an n-type impurity semiconductor layer (not shown) below the source electrode 22b are interposed with a predetermined gap. Are formed opposite to each other. The drain electrode 21a of the TFT 21 and the drain electrode 22a of the TFT 22 are electrically connected to the drain bus line 14, respectively. The TFTs 21 and 22 are arranged in parallel. A protective film (not shown) made of a dielectric material such as a SiN film is formed on the entire surface of the substrate on the TFTs 21 and 22.

  A storage capacitor bus line 18n extending in parallel with the gate bus line 12n is formed across the pixel region defined by the gate bus line 12n and the drain bus line 14. A storage capacitor electrode 19 is formed for each pixel on the storage capacitor bus line 18n via an insulating film. The storage capacitor electrode 19 is electrically connected to the source electrode 21 b of the TFT 21 through the connection electrode 25. A first storage capacitor is formed between the storage capacitor bus line 18n and the storage capacitor electrode 19 facing each other through the insulating film.

  The pixel region defined by the gate bus line 12n and the drain bus line 14 is divided into a subpixel A and a subpixel B. For example, the trapezoidal sub-pixel A is arranged on the left side of the center of the pixel area, and the sub-pixel B is arranged on the upper, lower, and central right end of the pixel area excluding the area of the sub-pixel A. The arrangement of the sub-pixels A and B in the pixel region is substantially line symmetric with respect to the storage capacitor bus line 18n, for example. A pixel electrode 16 is formed on the sub-pixel A, and a pixel electrode 17 electrically isolated from the pixel electrode 16 is formed on the sub-pixel B. The pixel electrodes 16 and 17 are both formed of a transparent conductive film such as ITO. The pixel electrode 16 is electrically connected to the storage capacitor electrode 19 and the source electrode 21b of the TFT 21 through a contact hole 24 in which a protective film is opened. The pixel electrode 17 is electrically connected to the source electrode 22b of the TFT 22 through a contact hole 26 in which a protective film is opened. The pixel electrode 17 has a region that overlaps the storage capacitor bus line 18n via a protective film and an insulating film. In this region, a second storage capacitor is formed between the pixel electrode 17 and the storage capacitor bus line 18n facing each other through the protective film and the insulating film.

  A third TFT 23 is disposed below each pixel region. The gate electrode of the TFT 23 is electrically connected to the gate bus line 12 (n + 1) at the next stage of the pixel. An operating semiconductor layer 23c is formed on the gate electrode with an insulating film interposed therebetween. A channel protective film (not shown) is formed on the operating semiconductor layer 23c. On the channel protective film, the drain electrode 23a and an n-type impurity semiconductor layer (not shown) under the drain electrode 23a and the n-type impurity semiconductor layer (not shown) under the source electrode 23b face each other with a predetermined gap therebetween. Is formed.

  The source electrode 23 b of the TFT 23 is electrically connected to the pixel electrode 17 through the contact hole 27. Near the TFT 23, a buffer capacitor electrode 128b having a right triangle shape is disposed. The buffer capacitor electrode 128b is connected to the storage bus line 18 (n + 1) (not shown in FIG. 5) disposed between the gate bus line 12 (n + 1) and the gate bus line 12 (n + 2) via the connection electrode 35. Is electrically connected. Since all the storage capacitor bus lines 18 have the same potential, even if the buffer capacitor electrode 128b is connected to the next storage capacitor bus line 18 (n + 1), the buffer capacitor electrode 128b is connected to the storage capacitor bus line 18n. The potential does not change. On the buffer capacitor electrode 128b, a right-angled triangular buffer capacitor electrode 128a is disposed via an insulating film. The buffer capacitor electrode 128a is electrically connected to the drain electrode 23a. The buffer capacitor electrodes 128a and 128b arranged opposite to each other and the insulating film sandwiched therebetween constitute a buffer capacitor unit 128, and a buffer capacitor is formed in the buffer capacitor unit 128. The drain electrode 23a of the TFT 23 and the storage capacitor bus line 18 are indirectly connected by capacitive coupling via the buffer capacitor Cb.

  As described above, the liquid crystal display device shown in FIG. 5 includes three TFTs 21, 22, and 23 for each pixel. Hereinafter, the structure of such a liquid crystal display device is referred to as a “3 TFT halftone structure”.

  As the buffer capacitance electrode 128a varies depending on the manufacturing process, the buffer capacitance electrode 128a varies in area from pixel to pixel. As a result, the value of the buffer capacitance Cb varies, resulting in display unevenness.

Thereby, the liquid crystal molecules in the liquid crystal layer are aligned substantially perpendicular to the substrate surface when no voltage is applied.

  In the liquid crystal display device having a 3TFT halftone structure, when the gate bus line 12n is selected and the TFTs 21 and 22 are turned on, the same voltage is once applied to the liquid crystal capacitors Clc1 and Clc2 of the sub-pixels A and B. Thereafter, when the next-stage gate bus line 12 (n + 1) is selected and the third TFT 23 is turned on, the charge stored in the liquid crystal capacitor Clc2 of the sub-pixel B moves to the buffer capacitor Cb, thereby causing the sub-capacitor Cb to move. The voltage of the liquid crystal capacitor Clc2 of the pixel B decreases, and a difference occurs between the voltage of the liquid crystal capacitor Clc1 of the subpixel A and the voltage of the liquid crystal capacitor Clc2 of the subpixel B.

  As described above, when subpixels A and B having different voltages applied to the liquid crystal layer are present in one pixel, the distortion of the transmittance characteristic (TV characteristic) with respect to the voltage applied to the liquid crystal layer is reduced to the subpixel A, Distributed with B. For this reason, it is possible to suppress whitishness (a phenomenon in which the color of an image becomes whitish when viewed from an oblique direction), and the viewing angle characteristics are improved.

  In the liquid crystal display device having the 3 TFT halftone structure, the pixel electrode 17 of the sub-pixel B is connected to the drain bus line 14 via the TFT 22. The electric resistance of the operating semiconductor layer 22c of the TFT 22 is extremely lower than the electric resistance of the insulating film, protective film, etc. even in the off state. For this reason, the electric charge stored in the pixel electrode 17 is easily discharged. Therefore, according to the present embodiment, despite the use of the halftone method with which a wide viewing angle can be obtained, there is no dark image sticking.

  According to the present embodiment, since the buffer capacitor electrode 28a has a square shape, the buffer capacitor electrode 28a is less susceptible to variations due to the manufacturing process than the conventional buffer capacitor electrode 128a having a right triangle shape shown in FIG. Good display quality without unevenness can be obtained.

Table 1 shows the difference in the area of the buffer capacitance electrode between the square and the right triangle when the area of the buffer capacitance electrode deviates from the design value S. When the design value S of the area of the buffer capacitor electrode is 100 μm 2 and the pattern is assumed to be thin by 1 μm by over-etching in the manufacturing process, the finished area is completed with a square buffer capacitor electrode 28a as shown in Table 1. Area [μm 2 ] = (10−2) [μm] × (10−2) [μm] = 64 μm 2
The buffer capacitor electrode 128a having a right triangle shape has a size of about 62.05 μm 2 , and the square buffer capacitor electrode 28a has an advantage of about 1.95% over the design value.

Conversely, an area rising A can with patterns fat 1 [mu] m, finished in square buffer capacitance electrode 28a area [μm 2] = (10 + 2) [μm] × (10 + 2) [μm] = 144μm 2
The buffer capacitor electrode 128a having a right triangular shape has a thickness of about 146.89 μm 2 , and the square buffer capacitor electrode 28a has an advantage of about 2.89% over the design value.

  From the above results, in the liquid crystal display device having a 3TFT halftone structure using the square buffer capacitor electrode 28a, the manufacturing process is compared with the case of using the conventional right triangle buffer capacitor electrode 128a shown in FIG. It can be seen that the variation in the area of the buffer capacitance electrode due to can be reduced, and the display unevenness due to the variation in the buffer capacitance Cb between the pixels can be reduced.

[Second Embodiment]
A liquid crystal display device according to a second embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 4 shows the configuration of one pixel of the liquid crystal display device according to this embodiment. In the description of the liquid crystal display device and the like according to the present embodiment, the same reference numerals are given to components having the same functions and operations as those of the first embodiment, and detailed description thereof is omitted.

  In the liquid crystal display device according to the present embodiment, a circular buffer capacitor electrode 38a is arranged instead of the square buffer capacitor electrode 28a of the first embodiment, and a circular shape is used instead of the square buffer capacitor electrode 28b. The buffer capacitor electrode 38b is disposed.

  The buffer capacitor electrode 38b is connected to the storage bus line 18 (n + 1) (not shown in FIG. 4) between the gate bus line 12 (n + 1) and the gate bus line 12 (n + 2) via the connection electrode 35. Is electrically connected. The buffer capacitor electrode 38a is electrically connected to the drain electrode 23a. The buffer capacitor electrodes 38a and 38b arranged opposite to each other and the insulating film sandwiched therebetween constitute a buffer capacitor unit 38, and a buffer capacitor Cb is formed in the buffer capacitor unit 38. The drain electrode 23a of the TFT 23 and the storage capacitor bus line 18 are indirectly connected by capacitive coupling via the buffer capacitor Cb.

  According to the present embodiment, since the buffer capacitor electrode 38a has a circular shape, the buffer capacitor electrode 38a is less susceptible to variations due to the manufacturing process than the conventional buffer capacitor electrode 128a having a right triangle shape shown in FIG. Good display quality without unevenness can be obtained.

Table 2 shows the difference in the area of the buffer capacitor electrode when the shape of the buffer capacitor electrode is a circle, a square, and a right triangle. As shown in Table 2, when the design value S of the area of the buffer capacitor electrode is 100 μm 2 and the pattern is assumed to be thinned by 1 μm due to over-etching by the manufacturing process, the finished area is the circular buffer capacitor electrode 38a. The buffer capacity electrode 128a having a right triangle shape of about 67.6 μm 2 is about 62.05 μm 2 , and the circular shape has an advantage of about 5.55% over the design value.

Conversely, an area rising A can and pattern fat 1μm is about 138.44Myuemu 2 in circular buffer capacitor electrodes 38a, about 146.89Myuemu 2 becomes in a right triangle-shaped buffer capacitance electrode 128a, the circular buffer capacitance electrode 38a Is about 8.45% more advantageous than the design value.

  From the above results, by making the shape of the buffer capacitor electrode 38a circular, the area variation of the buffer capacitor electrode 38a due to the manufacturing process is reduced as compared to the conventional right triangle buffer capacitor electrode 128a shown in FIG. It can be seen that display unevenness due to fluctuations in the buffer capacity Cb between the pixels can be reduced.

  As described above, according to the present invention, in the liquid crystal display device having a 3 TFT halftone structure, it is possible to suppress fluctuations in the buffer capacitance Cb that cause display unevenness. As a result, it is possible to realize a wide viewing angle liquid crystal display device that can hardly cause image sticking and can stably obtain display characteristics without display unevenness. In the present embodiment, the pixel configuration is basically designed to be applied to a VA mode liquid crystal display device such as the MVA method, but the principle and effect are not limited to the VA mode. The present invention can be applied to all liquid crystal display devices such as TN, IPS and OCB.

The present invention is not limited to this, but the present invention is not limited to this, and the storage capacitor bus in which the buffer capacitor electrode 28b is disposed between the gate bus line 12n and the gate bus line 12 (n + 1) is described. The present invention can also be applied to a liquid crystal display device electrically connected to the line 18n.

  In the above embodiment, a transmissive liquid crystal display device is taken as an example. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and can be applied to other liquid crystal display devices such as a reflective type and a transflective type.
